3 ~ John William Garret ~ John William Garrett, Jr. was born on December 10, 1931 to John William, Sr. and Ethel Marie Garrett. We were told that he didn t walk until he was almost 14 months old because he was so cute and spoiled that his dad carried him everywhere. He grew up with 5 brothers and 1 sister Esther, Charles, James, George, Allen Jr., and Robert. He enlisted in the United States Air Force and served a tour of duty in Vietnam and returned home safely to complete 20+ years of service. He worked as a civilian for the Defense Mapping Agency in Bethesda, MD where he retired after 20 years of service in He was referred to as Bay, Dad, Pop, Grandaddy, John, Uncle Johnny, Bro-n-law and a host of other names. However, on June 21, 2013, he remembered the scripture, to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord...with that; he smiled and went home. John was born again and a member of Florida Avenue Baptist (DC) until he was later led by God to join Full Gospel AME later to become From the Heart Ministries. He loved God and until he became challenged in his physical body, he regularly attended Sunday service and Tuesday night bible study. On his 80th birthday he received a letter from President Obama wishing him a happy birthday and commending him on his years of service to his country. For those of you who never got to meet John in person you actually did get to spend time with him through all of our family members because we are a reflection of who he is. John was a man of many talents. As our family discussed what his role would be in heaven, we determined that he would simply spend his time in praise and worship because there won t be anything to paint, no plumbing to fix, no swimming pool to clean preparing for his children, nieces and nephews and no WAFFLES, pancakes to make and no cowboy boots to order online from QVC or HSN. He was definitely a homebody ; he didn t want to go anywhere but loved for people to come to his home and share whatever he had. Now, that doesn t mean he was going to leave out of his TV room to entertain you but he always wanted people there. John was a husband and father extraordinaire. It didn t matter how many times his wife called his name; he would respond.. Yes, Bay!!!. When we gathered for family functions, the nieces and nephews would often say.. Aunt Buddy, give Uncle Johnny a break; you have called him a million times. She would laugh and say, he ain t doing nothing else. John leaves behind his only living sibling George Garrett, wife of 57 years Phoebe J. Garrett, sons Brian Garrett and Damon Garrett, daughter Olivia Garrett and granddaughter Joi Garrett. His brothers-n-law Rahim Jenkins and Conrad Bell; sisters-n-law Wyjean Garrett, Cynthia Bell, and Quanic Jenkins, and a host of nieces and nephews that he loved dearly.

4 I remember Never... Sweat the Small Stuff.. Life is all Small Stuff No matter what time of the year, what was happening or where it was happening... Uncle Johnny always managed to talk about 3 things Redskins/Cowboys, my childhood love for pancackes, and a story dealing with pancakes...by the way i still love pankcakes!!! ~ Bukhari Hot Good Jenkins - Nephew Don t make me break western in here! My dad had me drive all the way over from Laurel just to take me around the corner to show me a street that was named after his nickname for me Pookie Way we laughed for days about that. I will always be John Garrett s Pookie ~ Olivia Pookie Garrett - Daughter Ha ha Oh Lord that was funny! When we lived in Ohio me and dad would always play horse or shoot free throws and I could never beat him with that goofy looking left handed shot of his. ~ Brian Bosey Garrett The highlight of my visit would be going downstairs to see your dad. He would be sitting in his chair and I would say, Hey dad, and he would respond, Hey sugar, how are you doing? You and Libby going out?. Him saying those words would always make me feel like I was his other daughter.~ Pamela Shuga Brooks Other Daughter As i look back on the male mentors in my life he was certainly there maybe not as loud as Furman O. or Alvin P. but he definitely was a major part of my life and I lived in uncle Johnny s swimming pool ~ Furman Poindexter - nephew When we first met in 1950 John was working at the movie theater - he asked me to call him but i said i don t have a phone. So he went away and came back with a paper cup full of nickels and said Can you call me now ~ Phoebe Bay Garrett - Wife Your Dad was more than just a brothern-law to me. He was a big Brother! I can t remember a time in my life when I did not know him. He stood up for me. Fixing broken windows in the neighborhood because I was always throwing rocks at somebody. Getting my eye glasses fixed cause I was always fighting with them on and they had to be fixed before my Dad got home so I would not get my butt tore off my back. He was a Son to my parents and more than a provider and protector for my Sister. His kindness lives!!!!!!!!!!! ~ Rahim Hot Rod Jenkins - Brother-in-law If it don t bother me I don t bother it jack! Pancakes will never be the same and cowboy boots will never be as special! My Uncle Johnny Always Made Sure I Had Both! Long Live The Gentlemen - Saudia Lady Sau Jenkins - Niece Go get me the witcha-com & bring it here Dad would TRY to get us up in the morning and say time to roll Jack ~ Damon Duke Garrett When I roll Jack everybody roll! He loved Sweet Potatoe Pie and he hung plenty drapes, curtains and kept my kitchen floor looking good. He required 3 meals per day and no sandwich and don t be slow getting it! ~ Aunt Freddie There was nothing like uncle Johnny s cheese burgers on a hot summer day. ~ Cousin Sam and Tonya. He Loved... Favorite Team Favorite Color was Brown ordering Food from Peapod on his tablet Checkers Cheeseburgers Shrimp Fried Rice & Sesame Chicken Bob Evans Sausage & gravy biscuits Egg-Foo Young Apple & Sweet Potato Pie Fishermen s Red Lobster Fish-n-more Long John Silvers Egg Naw Icecream used to say Naw instead of Nog Meatloaf & Meatloaf Sandwiches Made the World s Best Mashed Potatoes - Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Cheeseburgers & PANCAKES!! Western Movies & Cowboy Boots
